Climate: Piekenierskloof has a warm climate, but enjoys light winds from the southwest which results in cool evenings. The vineyards grow at high altitude and the approximate rainfall is 360mm per annum.

Soil: The vineyards are situated on a northeastern slope at the very top of Piekenierskloof pass. The Chenin Blanc bush vines are planted in deep sandy soil and yields 5 tons per hectare. Extreme heat and dry land conditions necessitates deep root development, which serves as a great buffer against the harsh conditions.

Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed, pressed and left over night to settle. A portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barrels for five months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Colour – Light Fresh Straw Aroma – Tropical aromas of peaches, apricots and pineapple are well supported by a fresh lime and melon notes that adds a fantastic complexity to this multilayered nose.
